Morgan Rider and the Deep Dark River
Morgan Rider and The Deep Dark River return with their second chapter “Leviathan & The Deep Dark Blue” (North Soul Records) to be experienced by listeners this coming November 22nd, 2019 to follow the first chapter “King of The Forest” (North Soul Records) released this past June.
Morgan Rider & the Deep Dark River combines all the humble qualities of blues, folk and classical into a well-balanced, artfully crafted musical reflection on life, hope and old-fashioned storytelling while delivering a uniquely fresh and uplifting listening experience.
Born in 1989, singer, song-smith and multi-instrumentalist Morgan Rider had his earliest imaginings of life as a musician while contending with a tumultuous childhood. Often overhearing his mother – who is a trained operatic soprano – his love and understanding of music blossomed at an early age. Morgan wound up spending his adolescent and early adult years performing in touring metal bands – appearing on tours and large festivals across North America and Europe.
During the summer of 2017, Morgan’s adoration of folk, classical and blues music finally culminated into a project and the beginnings of a collection of songs. The name Deep Dark River had been stuck in his head for years, as a byproduct of his writings and alluding to the very nature of his ideas as a musician and artist. As such, Deep Dark River became the name by which he would perform beneath.
While his ideas began to take form, so did his mindset for what became the early stages of Deep Dark River. In early 2018, the first original Deep Dark River single ‘The Golden Bough’ was released digitally worldwide. Morgan began performing live and also toured to the Canadian east coast to promote the single. In the summer of 2018, the debut album Deep Dark River was release, followed by a full Canadian solo tour.
